ANOVA-TM® Design of Experiments: The Taguchi Method

ANOVA-TM® for Windows is based on the methods developed by Dr. Genichi Taguchi. This indispensable software is an orderly and methodical process for systematically assessing experimental results (when a variety of factors dynamically effect a specific quality characteristic). ANOVA-TM® employs an easy-to-use Windows graphical user interface.


ANOVA-TM will help...
Maximize output and quality while minimizing product cost
Reduce output variability and process sensitivity to noise factors


Features include...

  • New configuration features: turn on or off warning messages, signal-to-noise (s/n) formulas, etc.
  • Reset array option when editing an orthogonal array
  • Updated dynamic characteristic calculations in accordance with ASI 
  • S/n data table for dynamic characteristics with new columns to represent intermediate calculations for compounded and non-compounded signal factors
  • Response and s/n ratio window titles now show total mean average, total s/n average and total slope average respectively
  • New dialog for Anova table to facilitate pooling of factors
  • Response graph window title includes the analysis type, useful in dual graph mode
  • Two new workbook examples for dynamic characteristics from the ASI Robust Design Manual
  • Individual orthogonal array files and 4-way analysis of an orthogonal array or single factor (orthogonal arrays up to L108 in size)
  • Decomposition of factors to unit degree of freedom, computation of interactions between factors, and use of s/n, sensitivity analysis, and omega transformation in calculations
  • Dual graphs for raw versus s/n and s/n versus sensitivity as well as user-defined s/n ratio editor
  • Auto pooling on V, F, and Rho% (plus un-pooling functions)
  • Display and print-level sums, level averages, and process averages
  • Graphics capabilities for level average response tables (a line graph for variable data and a histogram for attribute data)
  • Capability of generating data-collecting forms on which to set up experiments
